Why the beloved NUTRILITE DOUBLE X supplement has always been ahead of its time

Just a few years ago, the Nutrilite Health Institute commissioned a study into phytonutrient intake. Up until then, although nutrition experts had long established the beneficial link between diets rich in fruits and vegetables and thriving health, similar reports specifically on phytonutrients were rare. This all changed with the results of the study being published in the well-known Journal of Nutrition. However, while the results were perhaps surprising for some, the beloved NUTRILITE DOUBLE X™ Food Supplement has always incorporated large amounts of plants into its winning formula.

Nature’s best

The Nutrilite Health Institute summarised the findings of the groundbreaking research in a Global Phytonutrient Report, which set out to establish the relationship between fruits, vegetables, phytonutrients, and what it all means for our health and wellbeing. Some of the more shocking – although perhaps not entirely surprising – findings included that “a majority of adults worldwide fail to consume the minimum quantity of fruits and vegetables recommended by the World Health Organization”.

In addition, the report also identified most-commonly-consumed groups of fruits and vegetables and their associated phytonutrients. These included tomatoes, with phytonutrients alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene; corn, with lutein and zeaxanthin; and eggplants, with anthocyandin. How much should be consumed? Currently, phytonutrient intake amounts have not yet been established; however, the report did conclude that a variety of fruits and vegetables was the best way to “ensure intake levels of phytonutrients that support optimal health”. Happily, DOUBLE X has long incorporated a large amount of plants in its formula, proving that its solid philosophy , based on a combination of natural and scientific elements, has always been – and remains – ahead of its time.
